Patagonia River Guides believe in hunting wild quail the traditional way- with a dog and a gun.

 In addition to our world-class fly fishing programs, Patagonia River Guides also offers some of the finest wild quail and red stag hunting in South America allowing guests the unique opportunity to combine fly fishing and hunting from the same lodge starting March 15th. Cast and Blast trips can be arranged for as few as four days, but it is recommended to spend a full week to try three or four different and unique rivers and two to three days of quail hunting. Guests could easily fish a full week and never fish the same river twice and Patagonia River Guides has over 100,000 acres leased for quail hunting. For those guests’ wishing to fish, quail hunt, and stalk red stag, we recommend either a nine or ten night program to allow time to dedicate to all three species.patagonia-wingshooting-collage-1

Guests should be physically fit and enjoy easy to moderate walking to hunt quail with our guides and pointers. Hunting wild quail the traditional way – with a dog and a gun — is a fulfilling experience and there are few places one can still do that today. Our California Quail bob and weave from bush to bush and prefer to run; however, once pinned down by our dogs, they are quick to fly and very challenging for the average hunter. A good shot should expect between six and dozen quail per day and most shoot over a box of shells per outing. As with everything in fishing and hunting, some shoot a whole box and bag just a few quail so assigning a number per day is arbitrary. That’s hunting but trust us when we say the birds are not your kick-and-shoot pen raised birds, they are challenging and there are many.patagonia-wingshooting-collage-2

Patagonia River Guides has six well-trained English and Elhew pointers and professional guides to handle the dogs and execute great hunts. One guide is provided for every two hunters and safety is our highest priority! Patagonia River Guides provides Beretta Urika 391 Automatic 20-gauge shotguns with interchangeable chokes and shells for each guest for a small fee. Guests should pack field pants, high quality field-hunting boots, and game bag or vest (with hunters orange). Shooting glasses and gloves are optional. If you would prefer to bring your own gun, as many do, we can help you with the paperwork and getting your gun into Argentina. The process is straightforward and Argentina is hunter friendly.
